    Battlefield3 first thoughts.

    Constant crashing BSOD's for me once I get in a game or in single player. Seems to take varied amounts of time to crash... sometimes 30 seconds, sometimes 5 mins. Never got to be in the game for more than 5 mins so far. Of the small bits of gameplay I have seen, it's great! I just want to resolve the issues... BSOD + Restarts wear on one's nerves.

    Time Travel

    Yeah. But actually in all gravity, not just extreme examples. The closer you are to a body of gravity, the slower your time relative to something away from the body of gravity. e.g. If you were walking on a cold neutron star and I was a million km away. When you look at me you'd see my life occuring very quickly, as gravity near you causes my time to speed up. Conversely, when I look at you, you'd be going slow. REALLY slow. Because the gravity near you slows your time relative to me. This effect is why satellites in stationary orbit (i.e. their velocity relative to us is zero) still have "fast" clocks and lose sync with their on-ground counterparts. If we ever manage to manipulate gravity in the way we have electricity and magnetism then we will start to see some rather interesting time-dilation effects. err, someone missed a psyics lesson. just because they are stationary to us does not mean they aren't moving, they are moving faster than us relative to anything else in the universe thats why they fall out of time No, I didnt miss any physics (or psychics?) lessons, and I'm not wrong. The effect of time is actually one in the same, based on the either a) relative velocity and b) relative gravitational effect. Relative to us, a stationary orbit satellite has a zero velocity. It's not moving, relative to us. The only effect on it's space-time is that imposed by strength of gravity. This is a difference that affects the flow of time, relatively. They fall out of time from us, even though they are not moving relative to us. This is still of consequence, though significantly smaller due to the relatively small difference in gravity felt some 80km above the earth. The larger, more readily observed dilation is in fast moving satellites. That is the other part of the theory you're referring to. If you're pointing out that, relative to other objects in the universe, we and our stationary satellites are moving, then yes, we are travelling at a different rate of time to them, and therefore we are 'timetravelling'. It must be noted that EVERYTHING in the universe is moving, relative to something else somewhere out there... so it's kind of implied. Oh and to OP.... well maybe there's a heaps bigger, heaps worse bad guy out there that time travellers keep trying to kill. Maybe Hitler is small fry compared to this octopus-in-a-can type baddie?

    Thanks Judas!

    Hmm I think there's a good point in this thread. We need a public holiday for Muhummad too. I mean really... It's just no fair that only Christians get a holiday in Aus. We need to represent the other religions, and take on their holidays too! I could really enjoy Buddah day, Muhummad day and Sihk day. That would be the fully Sihk weekend!

    Artistic freedom. Artistic merit.

    To me this whole issue is exactly the same as the ingredients list on a packet of noodles. It's there to tell me what's inside before I get into it. It's not to restrict my diet, or the cullinery expression of the trouble master chef, it's a heads-up.

    Stoopid Good Friday = No Meat rule...

    Yeah I'm weary of the meat on Good Friday thing, but only because I offended someone chowing on a meat pie a few years back. Since then I've been wary. My wife is ok with it, having only a mild case of catholisism, but her family can't handle it. The grandparents... they'd freak! But then they have trouble understanding that I was never Christened or Baptised, like somehow it wouldn't be possible. It's one of those days of the year where people seem to get all 'Holier than thou' and like to draw attention to these things... so I try to avoid stirring these days. Explains why heaps of people eat fish and chips on fridays I thought it was Fish and Chip Friday because of the alliteration?

    The Borgias

    In Assissins Creed Brotherhood you anihilate a bunch of the Borgias.

    Maybe I really don't hear what my wife says.

    Anyone else want him to say "... black sheep have you any wool?" That is seriously crazy. I kept looking at it thinking I'd get my brain right, but even when the lip synch on the "fa fa fa" was out from the actual "ba ba ba" footage I still hear "fa fa fa". Eye's closed and picturing one or the other is nuts too. I'm so interested now, thanks BBC (and OP).

    Covered Songs better than the original.

    edit: yep... what Kiks said on page 1.
  10. I know I was lucky to get quite a good education, particularly through a great high school, but I can't get my head around people not knowing the basic stuff... I'm certain, based no evidence other than what I can make up on the spot, that its directly linked to the lack of the cane. Bring it back and beat them till they can count! Then beat them more.

    Black Dynamite

    Yep, that line sold me.

    How did you decide on... what you want?

    You do realise that if you become a rich mining mogul you can buy your own helicopter and afford lessons. And you can even be the boss of said helicopter, if you want to be an officer... :)

    Covered Songs better than the original.

    Agreed, they rock it. But even better than that: RENEGADES The entirely cover album by Rage Against The Machine. That is the shit right there.

    Artistic freedom. Artistic merit.

    Yes, but not in the sense of banning stuff, just a viewer guide. I think there needs to be ratings, so people don't walking into a gallery and see a painting of some dude getting boned by a donkey and have to explain that to their kids. (I made up that example, but I figure it's happened somewhere to someone at sometime.) Oh and I feel the same of games, videos, books, etc. It should be allowed, but with a warning depending the content. But no banning!

    A termite walks into a bar...

    No he's at this place. Yeah that thread jogged my memory... ...and I guess the joke is better when spoken... ...by Robzy.
